How do you pronounce Victor Dubuisson’s name?

You may want to learn how to say Victor Dubuisson's name. The Frenchman may have fallen in the final of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship to Jason Day, but the 23-year-old officially announced himself to the world in the Arizona desert.

Dubuisson made his announcement with his play, however, not with his voice. So that left the announce crews of CBS and Golf Channel to discern how exactly to say his last name.

How, then, do you pronounce Victor Dubuisson? The Victor part is easy. But Dubuisson? It's dew-BWEE-sohn, with the emphasis on the second syllable.

The WGC-Accenture Match Play could have been his second professional win after taking the Turkish Airlines Open last October on the European Tour. Instead, he'll earn Special Temporary Status on the PGA Tour with a chance to accept unlimited sponsor exemptions for the remainder of the season.

American golf fans can expect to next see Dubuisson at the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral.
